Item description for The Deeper Journey: The Spirituality of Discovering Your True Self by M. Robert Mulholland...

Encourages individuals to stop hiding behind false selves and to start discovering who they truly are, enabling them to establish an intimacy with God and more compassion toward loved ones and the world. "Paints a picture of profound and even mysterious connection with God. . . . [A] very personal invitation into this deeper journey." --Publishers Weekly, December 19, 2005.

Publishers Description
As you journey deeper in the Christian pilgrimage, you come to realize that the Christian life is more than merely replicating particular spiritual disciplines or practices. You begin to understand that at the core of Christian faith is the transformation of your very identity. M. Robert Mulholland Jr. exposes the false selves that you may be tempted to hide behind and helps you to instead discover the true self that comes from being hidden with Christ in God. If the goal of the Christian journey is Christlikeness, then you must reckon with the unhealthy ways that you root your sense of being in things other than God. Along the way, you will discover a growing sense of intimacy and abandonment to God. Not only will you encounter the joy of discovering your own self, you will also find a greater love for others and compassion for the world.

From Publishers Weekly
Tapping into the desire many Christians have for a deeper spiritual life, Asbury Theological Seminary professor Mulholland (Invitation to a Journey) begins at the end goal of the discipleship journey-"to be like Jesus." But picturing something far beyond wearing a "WWJD" bracelet, he explains that being like Jesus actually implies a deep unity with God. Using scripture and quotations from many famous Christian writers, he paints a picture of profound and even mysterious connection with God. The book's strength lies in its powerful description of the "false self" that all humans construct as a result of their estrangement from God. Using biblical foundations and ordinary life, Mulholland illustrates various characteristics of the "false self," which makes us fearful, protective, possessive, manipulative, destructive, self-promoting and indulgent. He follows with an excellent discussion of the extremely sneaky religious version of the "false self." But beyond "putting off the old self," Mulholland gives direction for "putting on the new self," repeatedly emphasizing that this transformation is and must remain God's work in our lives. Central to his conclusion is his argument that this change absolutely must be lived out in relationship to other people. The prayers and probing questions interspersed throughout provide a very personal invitation into this deeper journey. (Feb.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Deeper Journey: The Spirituality of Discovering Your True Self?

Pause and think  Jun 22, 2006
The Deeper Journey may not be a fast read, at least for me it wasn't because I paused to reflect on some pretty significant concepts. The author provides ample support to help you understand that we are to become transparent and vulnerable in our relationships and learn how to trust the genuine article. While the book takes you into deep self reflection on motives and openess, it also is not overwhelming or heavy handed. I think that Dr. Muholland has struck an even tone and will help a person to walk the talk and grow in their personal faith.
